No wonder you can never find these people. Edward Folks b 3 Feb 1897, is listed as Gordon Edward McGill on WW1 enlistment with sister Mabel Fawkes of Worcester Manitoba next of kin. Birth place listed as Glace Bay, no age given.
In 1919 next of kin is given as Mr W A Murray of Halifax.
He suffered from shell shock.
McGill cross US border 1921 giving uncle Jack Day of St John Nfld as contact.
Was he adopted?

William A, 47
Annie, 45
Ernest Foulkes, 12

Nfld vitals have a Celia Day b 1867, Harbour Grace Nfld.
Is this Annie by another name or did Celia die and Annie married Richard.

Hope this helps.
